Thank you to Gloria Guy our guest blogger this month.
As an employer your healthcare costs are escalating and will continue to do so. Your choices, your budget and your time are limited; and as a consumer, you have concerns about quality, safety, compliance and efficiency. To address increasing costs and the drivers that fuel them, you must create and implement effective health and productivity programs. By doing so, you can improve your employee’s health and lower employee related expenses such as workers’ compensation, disability, absenteeism, and healthcare costs. Being proactive and empowering employees to be responsible for their own healthcare is one of the most essential strategies to controlling your bottom-line.
